Landes & London Publish Article on Self-Reported ADHD and Adult Health in the United States

Lerner Affiliates Scott Landes and Andrew London published an article titled Self-Reported ADHD and Adult Health in the United States. Their research was informed by a social determinants of health framework and they investigated the relationship between self-reported ADHD diagnosis status and adult health, and whether observed associations are attenuated by biomedical and socioeconomic factors. Their results show that ADHD diagnosis was significantly associated with higher odds of injury, physical health conditions, functional limitations, fair/poor health, and psychological distress in fully specified models (adjusted odds ratios [AORs] = 1.62-2.36).
